    Alex Smith is my supervisor as we work for him in the community cleanup. he came to my church and said that if we live in the community(Brooklyn) he wanted to give us a job. So we signed up .and the team includes five of us.and we sweep, pass out trash cans .we have request from the community to sweep up there block.we have been sweeping in Brooklyn for 6 months and what a difference.
